Preparatory Companies



Brittany Tynan-Sisk, Tiffany Williams, Chaslen Olser and Taylor Quintero

The Preparatory Company (Prep) is designed for the student who makes dance a major priority. Members must possess exemplary technique, skills, and professionalism. While this company does not compete or attend conventions, they do perform the opening and closing numbers in our annual Spring Recital and at least one number in our Teamwork Concert in February. Members also participate in community events throughout the year. There are five levels in the Preparatory Company.

Membership in the Prep Company is by invitation only. To qualify for consideration, students must be enrolled in ballet and jazz classes at PCD for at least a full year and turn nine years old by the end of that school year. All qualified students are evaluated by their PCD teachers and scored on dance technique, attendance, work ethic, and overall dance abilities.

When chosen for the Prep Company, dancers are required to consistently attend their special company classes, consisting of two ballet and two jazz classes per week. Though these company classes are the only mandatory classes for Prep students, they are strongly encouraged to enroll in additional classes to continue improving technique, strength, and flexibility. An invitation for the Prep Company designates that dancer as a leader at PCD and a leader in their dance community.

While Prep Company members are not required to attend dance conventions or competitions, they are invited to attend any conventions that our PCD Performing Companies attend.
